The author gives the reader a glimpse into the under-represented perspective of a real males longing for romance, companionship, and enduring love. All the while revealing the internal struggle to maintain hope, find purpose, and just maybe, just maybe, the end all be all true lasting love.
It’s written with the unmistakable imprints of life loss, hurt, and hope. My favorite sustaining feeling is that of man who desperately, with all his soul, regardless of the past, looks to find for the last time the feelings of a first kiss and comfort of enduring love to soothe the rough corners of life as it comes. He is a romantic who would die for his love and live on only for the hope of finding her.
